Food & Drink

Foodie heaven

Foodies can look forward to a feast in Cairns, where cafe-lined streets like Grafton and Spence tempt travellers. Grab breakfast at Caffiend, tucked away in Cairns lanes. It serves up chilli eggs and French toast along with coconut lattes and great coffee.

Dine in the sunshine at The Esplanade, or enjoy Oz's famous Asian fusion food at The Raw Prawn. Friday through Sunday you can root through 200 stalls at Rusty's Markets, shoulder-to-shoulder with the locals.

Art & Culture

Tropical villages and ancient culture

Learn about Aboriginal culture at Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, just 20 minutes from Cairns' centre. The oldest living culture in the world, you can experience authentic theatre, didgeridoo performances and bush walks. Check out Mossman Gorge Centre, an ecomuseum devoted to Kuku Yalanji culture.

Kuranda Village is sequestered in the rainforest, but the skill of its artist community has led to its fame spreading far beyond the trees. Discover bookshops, galleries and boutiques along the village streets.

Submerge in the Great Barrier Reef
